Homemade croutons – Make use of your oven when cooking

I’m someone who loves to save money. A pound saved is the same as a pound earned. Often I try to make use of my oven being on. I will bake treats such as midnight cookies, or even cheese straws, when I already have my oven on. By making the most of the space in my oven I am saving energy, have nice treats at home and save money too. Homemade croutons are super simple, take just two minutes to prepare and taste delicious too!

Easy calzone recipe

My husband has had an operation recently. One of the first things that he asked for, when he started to feel better, was a calzone. I decided to knock up this easy calzone recipe. It was so simple to make, fun to prepare and delicious too. The total cost of this calzone, including ingredients, for two people, is well under £2! Depending on the fillings you want. I’m so happy with this easy calzone recipe that I’m already looking forward to making it again!

Easy homemade garlic bread

Recently I decided to bake some bread. This is something I usually do in my bread maker. From time to time I want to make bread the old fashioned way. By hand. This was fine and all, however, even though I set a timer the bread was a little over done! I knew that this wasn’t going to be nicest bread ever for sandwiches, or for my initial purpose which involved it going back in the oven! Anyway, I am trying to reduce food waste where I can so I wanted to find a way to use it up. I decided on easy homemade garlic bread and I am so glad that I did!
